This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class by Elizabeth Warren
Now, at this perilous moment for our nation, Senator Elizabeth Warren has written a book that is at once an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action.
This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class by Elizabeth Warren tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate. She vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people—she won’t sit down, she won’t be silenced, and she will fight back.
Elizabeth Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she remembers how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. The U.S. educational system offered opportunities for all, and made it possible for Elizabeth Warren to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and later, attending law school.
But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities no longer exist. A government that once looked out for working families is now a captive of the rich and powerful. President Franklin Roosevelt and his 1940’s New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity. President Ronald Reagan, in the l980’s, reversed course and sold us the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump, the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse.
Elizabeth Warren is the fiery senior U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, one of our country’s leading progressive voices, and an outspoken champion of America’s middle class.
She is a former Harvard Law School professor, and the author of ten books, including A Fighting Chance, a national bestseller that received widespread critical acclaim.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is the mother of two and grandmother of three. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with her husband.
